Hello,

Thank you using fixya.

Here are the things that you need to do:

1. Use a different power outlet. Maybe the outlet is bad.
2. Check the ac adapter. check if the light is lit. The light is a power indicator. If there's no power on it, then, you have to make sure that it's not broken or it's connected properly to the power outlet.
3. Check for any power indicators in the laptop. Like lights lit or the charge indicator. If there's none, then, the laptop is not receiving any power. It might be caused by a defective battery.
4. Remove the battery. Plug in the laptop to the ac adapter without the battery on it. Check for power indicators. Press the power button.

Let me know if there's any development. Leave me a message in this post.

Cant get 8n to run. starts but misses. new plugs, crb,distributor, coil, tank shut-off, ign switch, ceramic resister, ballast resister, fresh gas, but has power to ign switch whether on or off.


If it starts but misses meaning it runs but not on all cylinders?.....then,
Are the spark plug wires in the correct firing order?
Are the spark plug wires in good shape?
Is there compression on all cylinders?
If a valve is bad it won't fire smoothly.
If you pull the plugs are any black with carbon?
(a black carbon coated plug will not fire,especially with a 6 volt system)
Is the distributor car attached fully and correctly?
When the distributor cap is off,is there any side play in the distributor shaft?
Is the point gap correct on the points?
Start the tractor cold and feel the spark plugs,the one or two that are colder than the others are the missing cylinders,if two are cold you could try switching those spark plug wires with each other,in case they are mixed up,and if two are missing are side by side you could have a head gasket leak between cylinder problem.
TIP 1, the BEST THING to do on a Ford 8N is to convert it to 12 volts neg ground.Add a alternator,(76 chev pickup alt fits good) leave the starter as it is (it does care if it's positive or neg ground or 12v) and add a 72 dodge ignition resistor in line to a 12 volt coil.(unless your new 12v coil does not need a resistor)
This set up will increase your fuel economy,add power and start instantly in any temp.
TIP 2,you can use unleaded fuel in a Ford 8n as it already has hardened valve seats.
BUT 10% Ethanol fuel is BAD,it can be used, but shut off the fuel at the tank and let the tractor carb run dry before shutting it off if you are not going to use the tractor with in a few days.

Mitel 5224 not showing any signs of life


You should have received a power supply with the phone. If it is new, and will not turn on at all, there is a good chance it is not plugged in correctly. You should have two Ethernet cables plugged into the rear of the phone. One for Data, and another for power.

Once on, it will still have to be set up by your IP Service provider.

Aspire 3680 Won't charge


Hello,

Have you tested the A/C to be charging correctly ? Have you confirmed that at the back of your laptop where you plug the power in that the pin is not bend and not missing or broken or pushed in ?

If your new battery and the old battery give you exactly the same issue, then most likely your A/C power adapter or cable OR the physical port on your laptop is broken and needs to be replaced.

Compaq nx5000 with new battery and new power


Dear,

Try pressing the CAPS LOCK. If CAPS LOCK is responding then it is surely your inverter.

It is a known problem with the nx5000 series laptop.

The FAN switches off because Intel SpeedStep which is absolutely normal.

I faced and solved at least 6 - 7 such problems on different nx5000 laptops

If CAPS LOCK is not responding then its your motherboard.

Good Luck and Regards

My ACER 5570z will not start up. When power cord


You most likely have a broken DC Jack on the motherboard. Thus, the battery cannot get a charge and the power supply is not making a connection to the system board because of the broken DC Jack.

Good Luck

Dell inspiron blinking orange battery light. keybrd not respondg


Try this: remove your battery, unplug power, press and hold power button for at least 20 seconds, plug power cord back in but not the battery, press power and see if you get normal boot. If this is the case, your battery probably needs replaced.

Battery problem


It could be an hardware problem. I had a similar issue on a dell laptop.
the AC power outlet that was loose. Try to put the power cabel in and see if it moves around. If that is the case you would need a new mother board.
If the power supply is broken, your laptop is not able recived the power. If the PC doesn't get the power it can't charge the battery.

Does the machine behaive as described also when it's plugged into the wall? Becase if this is the case, it can't be a battery related issue. Now, if it does it just when you are using the battery, than you are correct it may be a battery issue.

the battery could be old (battery do no last forever) or maybe it doesnt fits correctly in the machine.

Let me know,
Angela

Use with usb adaptor


If the USB to PS2 adapter has 2 PS2 ports, make sure it is in the correct one, but this should not be the problem. I have heard that some PS2 keyboards do not work with some USB to PS2 adapters.. Too much trouble to get a USB keyboard?
